Winner of 3 Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Kismet has proven a winner with audiences time and again, thanks to its exotic setting, appealing characters and wry sense of humor, not to mention a lush score adapted from the soaring melodies of Alexander Borodin.
A series of well-navigated, sticky circumstances have landed the quick witted Public Poet in opulence. His rolling in gold is cut short when his maneuvering comes full circle, though, and he is forced in front of the Wazir who is set to chop off The Poet’s hand. As luck would have it, a last minute realization stays the Wazir hand and save The Poet’s. The wild ride continues as The Poet’s daughter falls in love with the handsome Caliph, The Poet falls in love with one of the Wazir’s concubine, and everyone falls in love with the whirlwind of occurrences that could only happen on an Arabian Night!
